Trump’s Immigration Order Creates Fear
By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine
You can see the fear in the eyes of the people. It was a pleasant day in South-East Queens but Liberty Avenue looked like a barren desert. Normally, this strip with its business would attract hundreds but today the people were taking no chances. The mere mention of the word ICE was enough to drive people in the underground.
The man from the barbershop complained of poor business; the roti shops were empty and those West Indian stores stopped playing the music. What’s the point, they argued? People were not buying. They were staying home. But it’s not only about business. Continue reading →
